Yes, if by "giving" you mean "charging $25 per seat"

Yep.. this is from the STH e-mail yesterday:
"Every two-game ticket plan purchased includes an exclusive Rangers Fan Pack consisting of Official 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™/Reebok team-branded knit hat and scarf to show your Blueshirt pride at the games. These commemorative items have been secured especially for our Blueshirt Faithful, and are being included at a special price of $25 total per plan (retail value $60)."

Btw here is the seating & price chart, in case it was not mentioned elsewhere yet:
http://rangers.nhl.com/v2/ext/Yankee...-%208.7.13.pdf

I don't think I will be going, and also not sure if will be purchasing the tickets, there's also this:
"While all 13-14 Season Subscribers will have access to purchase tickets, priority to purchase will be based on current seating levels and tenure to allow equivalent access."

I haven't heard, should normally be late September but I'm thinking because of the long opening road trip it might be the first week of October

Have to assume it will be like last year (at least what they had planned before the lockout) and that we will receive our tickets around October 15.

I just saw people are selling entire season tickets on stubhub, are these scalpers that have the season tickets just to be able to get playoff tix, or what's going on?
Just wondering, have not noticed this in earlier years

edit: I guess I would consider doing that if/when I will move abroad or be out of town and still want to keep the tenure

They have that for all teams every year on SH. They generally don't sell very well as a package no matter what the team

I haven't lost a cent on any Mets tickets I have tried to re-sell via SH, even with their 25% rake.

People have paid SH $60 for tickets I paid $32 for....
It all depends on your seating location...

My guess is you don't have FS which was I think patnyrnyg was referencing to for those April/may midweek games. You probably have a weekend type plan

No he's right, since the Mets stopped dumping prices have stabilized. There's not much of any meat on the bone to speculate for profit but if you're an actual fan with season tickets, you can now easily get your face value back throughout the year (unless the Mets start taking in the second half which hasn't happened this year)

Does anyone know what the "Chase Bridge" sections are? CB311,CB312 etc...They seem like theyre above the 200s in center ice. I don't understand where they are though. They're not actually ON the bridge are they? Is there a picture or view of this or something?

Go to http://rangers2013.io-media.com/

Then click "Level 10" on the navigator on the left. the 300s are the bridge.

Oh that's very interesting. I wasn't aware there were seats on the bridge. It actually looks like a decent view.

I haven't looked at what people have been saying about ticket prices on the bridges. But, for Knicks half seasons and mini plans, the second row on the bridge was $150 a ticket. Absolutely crazy. I don't know the full season price, but don't think they have full on the bridges.

Bridge row 3 (barstools) are $140 for the mini plans

I don't see how, considering 1) the attendance. The place is never full. 2) I have looked into mets plans even this year and they do not give any discounts off the individual price. It would be one thing if they discounted 25% for plans and the sth could capture the inside, but I do not recall that being the case.

Interesting. What kind of plan do you have and how many games have you sold? The $32 you paid, is that the same I would pay (less fees) if I went onto mets.com and tried to buy the same seats?

They still have plenty of them for sale. Very few left in row 1, some row 2s, and lots of bar stools.

The Mets do offer pack, plan, and full-season ticket buyers a discount over the rack rate (pricing for individual games) for the seating category in question. Fulls get the best deal. Plans get a better deal, pack buyers get 10 percent off. (packs are the 15-game pick-em plans.. you pay rack, then get 10 percent off at the end)

So in a sense, when you buy six months in advance, your tickets are priced at least 10 percent below the price paid for individual tickets, and for many games much more, since you aren't paying a convenience fee and a delivery fee. Well, you pay a delivery fee, but it's $25 for all your tickets for the season.

In addition, depending on the seating category, you can get better locations than you can a-la-carte later in the season. The exception is Prom Level 500's...

I have a 20 game "weekend" plan. My ideal plan would have been the old Tues/Friday plan, but alas it is no longer available. My plan consists of either the Friday & Sunday of a weekend three-game series, or the Saturday game of a weekend three-game series. The past two seasons, they have given me a Yankees game or Opening Day. With the Yanks only making two appearances, one of the four 20-game plans no longer gets a "marquee" game.

The rack rate for my seats for this category of game, before convenience fees, delivery fees, and dynamic pricing effects is $40; I paid $32. (20% off, plus no convenience fees / order fees). Fulls pay less (maybe $28 or $30).

I attempt to go to most games, but plans keep me away sometimes that I simply cannot avoid. (Another reason I loved the Tue / Friday plan -- it didn't interfere with weekend plans and I got to see one game in every series...) I haven't sold each and every seat in my plan when I have had a change in plans -- sometimes I've sold just two of the four. If I know well in advance that I have a conflict coming up, I can exchange my tickets for another in the same 'category'.

I've probably sold six games so far this season (all at a profit -- even a cold Friday in April game...)

Your ability to resell at a profit will be contingent upon your seating location. If you have a good location, you can compete directly with the box office, even with the SH rake, because the discount you received means you can sell at prices that are better than mets dot com after buyer, seller, and MLB fees are added. The only locations you may be able to get directly from the club that are better than your plan tickets are the ones the ticket office releases that they were holding back.


Cheers!

I'm on the fence about buying a ticket for these outdoor games. I'm only entitled to 1 ticket, but will the demand be there? The prices are pretty ridiculous already.

I can buy up to 6 tickets for the Yankee Stadium games but I am only interested in the Devils game. If anybody is interested in the Islander game then contact me by email and we can work it out.

My time slot for buying tickets is Tuesday 8-27 @ 10:00 AM
